As we enter the holiday spirit of backyard barbeques, flag waving, pool parties, and fireworks, we at SERVPRO of western Essex County would like to wish everyone a happy 4th of July. We would like to stress the importance of staying safe of any fireworks. While we use fireworks to mark this special holiday, it is in our best interest to stress the importance of safety. Fireworks cause thousands of burns and eye injuries each year. Most often children and teens are injured while using consumer fireworks. People can still enjoy fireworks if they follow simple safety tips. If you want to see fireworks, go to a public show put on by experts. Keep a close eye on children at events where fireworks are used. Do not use consumer fireworks. All in all, have fun and stay cool!

SERVPRO of Western Essex County is highly devoted to serving their community in the best way they can. Take a look at this wonderful contribution from Bob Morrison in his own words, as we highlight one of his many devotions to his community with a Hospital Facility Managers Group.
“I was on the waiting list for this group for many years, prior to getting inducted in 2003 and have been an active member since then.” Bill Anderson sponsored me, and I remain grateful to him for his efforts in assisting me. My relationship with Bill stemmed from when I was an account rep for Honeywell Inc., and was assigned our account at Rahway Hospital, where he was the Vice President of Facilities. I have been a member of ASHE dating back to 1993, and have remained active with since 2009. I currently serve on the Hospital Facility Managers Group, in which I greatly value and enjoy. I have been serving that capacity since 2015. Prior to then, I served as the Ad Journal Committee Chair, dating back to 2010. During that time, I was fortunate to have been recognized with the President’s Service Award for my efforts to the Chapter in 2012.
In my view, the culture has changed positively through the years, thereby encouraging and enabling member participation in many aspects of Chapter activities.
There has been an influx of newer members, including Regular Members, Professional Members as well as Professional Associate Members. In my view, this has enabled a more global perspective of the specific Healthcare challenges and concerns which our industry is faced with.
“The ability for all these varied backgrounds and points of view facilitates networking opportunities, from both a business-to- business level as well as via a peer-to-peer level.”
I have owned SERVPRO of Western Essex County for over 15 years. We provide both emergency and non-emergency services, including fire/water restoration, mold remediation, HVAC System and Air Duct System cleaning, Cooling Tower cleaning, deodorization, and many more. My company is certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning Restoration Certification (IICRC), the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), active with the Indoor Air Quality Association of New Jersey (IAQA). We are registered as a Small Business Enterprise (SME) with the State of New Jersey. We are registered with the Federal Small Business Administration (SBA), and with the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey as a Small Business.
We have performed services at many of the Chapter Institutions through the years, and remain excited about working with many more going forward. We offer an Emergency Response Profile (ERP) which is an electronic App which proactively provides valuable facility data should an event occur, on any portable electronic device on a real- time basis. This is available at no cost in essence, a free tool which we would be happy to generate upon request.
In summary, I love our organization and look forward to forging ahead together!”
CE Class May 1st 2018
It’s that time of year again! We here at SERVPRO of Western Essex county will be hosting a FREE 3 credit CE class for New Jersey P&C Insurance producers on Tuesday, May 1, 2017.
GOOD STUFF- ENHANCEMENTS YOU WANT ON YOUR CLIENT’S POLICIES (Enhancing your client's coverage is a critical part of the risk management function and is mandatory in today's competitive environment. Most policy forms as written, need to be broadened in a variety of ways: increasing-sub limits, broadening restrictive coverage, providing coverage where no coverage is given, and adding essential endorsements to help keep you out of court! Beware of some "broadening" endorsements that carriers include with their policies---as they may just give your more limit of a crummy coverage! This class will help you determine the expanded coverages you should be sure are included in your client's insurance program).
